Unlucky - The Montreal Witness presents an evidence of ill-fate:

The Algerian was built in 1857 and has since that time met with a number of accidents. As the Kingston she ran aground three times and was sunk; she was afterwards burnt to the water's edge below Kingston, at which time she had 300 passengers on board, all of whom were saved except one lady. On being repaired she was named the Bavarian, which in November 1873 was burnt off Oshawa harbor, her captain and several passengers falling victims to the accident and to the want of discipline and manhood manifested by the crew. She next appeared as the Algerian.
